Generocity’s mission has always been the same: to strengthen Greater Philadelphia as a leader in social impact. Today, we’re excited to not only cover the people and organizations around the city who are leading the way, we get to be an example of the kind of innovation we hope to see in the region.
That’s why we’re so excited that after a brief hiatus this summer, we’ll begin to be published by Technically Media, the online journalism and events organization best known as publisher of Technical.ly, the network of local tech news sites behind events like Philly Tech Week, and known for making their communities better.
Generocity Community Alliance (GCA), the nonprofit that previously published us is licensing the site to Technically Media, and is making a program-related investment (PRI) in the organization to develop a long term sustainability strategy for the site. We will be a living example of what we’ve been talking about for years here — consolidating resources to more effectively deliver on mission.
As the former Interim Executive Director of Generocity, I am thrilled to see the organization take this bold step. I believe that it positions the site to become the premier social impact news service and platform in Philadelphia and beyond. The PRI also illustrates that creativity and collaboration will lead to growth and long-term sustainability, which is vital in the ever-moving effort of nonprofits and mission-driven for-profits to spread impact.
With Technically Media’s leadership, Generocity.org will be able to cover and convene Philly’s social impact scene with a renewed energy, with the support of being part of a more experienced news organization. Technically Media will begin immediately to staff its efforts — they’re hiring an Editor and Lead Philly Reporter. The editorial content will be revived in the coming months and in early 2016, the site will be updated with a new look, retaining the Generocity.org name.
From our Partners
I am also happy to share that I will be continuing to support Generocity’s commitment to social enterprise, entrepreneurship and mission impact as the Generocity Community Manager at Technically Media, so you can also look forward to events and gatherings in the near future.
We’ve done great work in our five years. To take that work further, we needed a partner like Technically Media, and so I’m thankful Generocity founder Sandra Baldino is working with the Technically Media team, including its cofounders Chris Wink and Brian James Kirk.
We look forward to sharing the new editorial focus with you, and we look forward to seeing you soon at our upcoming events as we plow forward into the new era of Generocity.org.
